[ Upstream commit a73619a845d5625079cc1b3b820f44c899618388 ]

The __FILE__ macro is used everywhere in the kernel to locate the file
printing the log message, such as WARN_ON(), etc.  If the kernel is
built out of tree, this can be a long absolute path, like this:

  WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 1 at /path/to/build/directory/arch/arm64/kernel/foo.c:...

This is because Kbuild runs in the objtree instead of the srctree,
then __FILE__ is expanded to a file path prefixed with $(srctree)/.

Commit 9da0763bdd82 ("kbuild: Use relative path when building in a
subdir of the source tree") improved this to some extent; $(srctree)
becomes ".." if the objtree is a child of the srctree.

For other cases of out-of-tree build, __FILE__ is still the absolute
path.  It also means the kernel image depends on where it was built.

A brand-new option from GCC, -fmacro-prefix-map, solves this problem.
If your compiler supports it, __FILE__ is the relative path from the
srctree regardless of O= option.  This provides more readable log and
more reproducible builds.

Please note __FILE__ is always an absolute path for external modules.
